FYI -- I had something similar to this in an older version of CVS NT server
(last 1.x release, I believe).  I don't know if it's been fixed and could be
a client issue, too.  My symptoms:
	cvs co project
	cd project
	cvs update -d 
	-- same error as above.

After investigating it, checking through source, etc, I found it to be a
hosed Entries file in the CVS subdirectories.  They were not complete.  I
don't know the source of it, but manually fixing the Entries files
(multiple, if you have multiple directories), resolved it for me.
